Track Name: Under Lock and Key
Reel me in
The hands around my throat
It’s inescapable
My sleeves hide the scars inside
These things I’ve left behind
Shrouded in shadows
Show me the way
You cannot kid yourself
You have all the time in the world
The mind is a dangerous thing

Distraction can only hold back a breakdown for so long
I hope, I search for just a moment of ecstasy
It keeps me hostage
A fight for sanity
I’m holding onto what I know
A pariah to myself
Tear down the walls I’ve had
This curse evolves again
I’m holding onto what I know
A pariah to myself

Trapped inside

I want to be the hollow man
Heartless and ignorant to all that surrounds
Anything to keep me from my thoughts

Pull me out
My vice is the silence
All the memories come back to me
A whirlwind of hatred for only myself
But that’s in the past now
I need to get out
The lights are approaching
Its my choice to let them go

It keeps me hostage
A fight for sanity
I’m holding onto what I know
A pariah to myself
Tear down the walls I’ve had
This curse evolves again
I’m holding onto what I know
A pariah to myself
Track Name: Ares
I will end it all

I’m not here to harm you
And I promise to bring you peace
Believe in my concept
It will leave you with more
Stand by my side
I’ll show you whats right

Dropping from the sky
The earth will rumble
Cities left in ruins
The agent of chaos leaves you wanting
I lied to you to get my way
I took your hand and lead you astray
Marvel at my deceit

I am war

Sacrifices must be made for the greater good
Freedom isn’t free
Keep your eye on the prize
Stand by my side
I’ll show you what’s right

Dropping from the sky
The earth will rumble
Cities left in ruins
The agent of chaos leaves you wanting
I lied to you to get my way
I took your hand and lead you astray
Marvel at my deceit

I am war
Track Name: Change
They say that they love them
But the parade of hate still fills the streets
What makes that crowd so translucent?
To put down compassion we all wish to share

And how would you feel if everyone believed what you said?
Would the world be a better place?
Would we live in harmony?

It starts with you
The others will follow
We can be the voice to change it all

Why do they hate what they don’t understand?
The path of ignorance is endless
Keep walking until your feet bleed
There won’t be anyone to stop you

And how would you feel if everyone believed what you said?
Would the world be a better place?
Would we live in harmony?

It starts with you
The others will follow
We can be the voice to change it all

The hate stops now
Embrace a new frame of mind
Free yourself
The hate stops now

It starts with you
The others will follow
We can be the voice to change it all
Track Name: N.O.S
Do you feel deceived now?
You never question what your told

(Stand) on your podium
Speak the words on sincerity
(Address) your countrymen
Like you still walk amongst them
Now is the time to take action
Follow through with what you say

We’re slowly collapsing
Our perception slips away
It’s the end of our former dream
(The end of our former dream)

We’re so far from where we started
So stubborn to change
Suffocated
By unlawful authority
Enough
Take down the corrupt
Enough
Establish yourselves

Don’t stop the battle keep up the fight
Don’t stop the battle keep up the fight
(Keep up the fight)

We’re slowly collapsing
Our perception slips away
It’s the end of our former dream
(The end of our former dream)
We’re slowly collapsing

Rise up
Escape from the oppression
Stand up
Fuck what they say
Track Name: Holy Scam
Convincing everyone
There’s only one way to salvation
Such mindless bigotry
The truth does not reside in a book
We don’t need this faith

To all of you tyrants
Fuck your deceit
Bow your head to no one
Believe in yourself
These houses of stick & stone
Let’s eradicate them all
For the crimes of seizing the minds of the weak
Don’t you worry about me
I don’t need to be saved.

You can see the truth unfold all around you
Trust yourself to construct your reality

Confessions don’t change your sins
Karma remembers everything

Convincing everyone
There’s only one way to salvation
Such mindless bigotry

What makes these concrete walls so holy?
Tear them down brick by brick
Hypocrite, look at your world in shambles
Practice what you preach

To all of you tyrants
Fuck your deceit
Bow your head to no one
Believe in yourself
These houses of stick & stone
Let’s eradicate them all
For the crimes of seizing the minds of the weak
Don’t you worry about me
I don’t need to be saved.
Track Name: The Conditioning
Losing sight of every single thing
It’s written in gold
Tattooed in your eyes so amorous
They tricked you, you fool
Peer into you past
What have you done with all this time?

They told you their secrets
And filled you with hope
Stuck inside a labyrinth
And there’s nowhere to go

Slave away
You watch it pass you by
We all forget, we’re out of time
Purposeless in life
Fall in line
You’re cold inside
Live to die
Or die to live

A let down follows everyday
This lack of fulfillment
It means everything

You’re living so sheltered
Petrified to tempt fate
Put it all on the line
Dare to defy all of it
It’s your life
Make it your own

They told you their secrets
And filled you with hope
Stuck inside a labyrinth
And there’s nowhere to go

Slave away
You watch it pass you by
We all forget, we’re out of time
Purposeless in life
Fall in line
You’re cold inside
Live to die
Or die to live
